Paper Napkin Votive Decoration

The reds and oranges make a wonderful light when this tealight gets lit. Of course, any other colors or designs can be chosen to make this. These are so quickly made, you can make a set of these for a very decorative way to light up a party table.



Summer Craft - Tea Light Luminaria Using Paper Napkins

For this project you will need:

- a jelly or mustard glass
- paper napkin in desired design
- stabile self sticking clear foil
- contact paper
- eyelets and eyelet hammer


1. Separate the top layer of the napkin from the bottom layers. The bottom layers can be discarded.
2. Decide on the napkin length and height needed. Measure the height about 1 inch higher than the glass and the length needs to longer than the size of the glass including its depth.
3. Having decided on the needed size, cut 2 pieces out of the napkin, 2 pieces of the stabile foil and 2 pieces out of the contact paper.
4. The stabile foil gets then placed with the sticky side down on the top side of the napkin on both pieces. Make sure there are no air bubbles and the foil adheres correctly.
5. On the backside of the napkin pieces, stick contact paper to protect the napkins.
6. Once completed, punch 2 holes on each side of the pieces. Use the picture as a guideline to judge where to put the holes. Using the eyelets, connect then both pieces together.
7. The latern is flat when finished and then it needs to get opened and wrapped snuggly around the glass.
